Book Description Rarebooksclub.com, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 246 x 189 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1881 edition. Excerpt: . in the north the winds range from N.W. to N.E., and in the south from S.W. to S.E. This is the normal state of affairs in summer, and all around our coast sea breezes prevail. But now if one of the constantly recurring whirls or cyclonic movements of the atmosphere, forming perhaps at the Cape of Good Hope, or on the ocean between here and there, should approach our western or south-western coast, a change of affairs very soon becomes apparent. In Western Australia, or perhaps first at Cape Borda or Cape Northumberland, the barometer begins to fall, the wind coming from N.E., then increasing from north; then the barometers at Portland, Cape Otway, George Town, Melbourne, Wilson s Promontory, fall in succession with a northerly wind, which increases in force as the pressure gets less; this wind, blowing from an area of higher to an area of lower pressure, although still from around the summer low pressure area of Central Australia, comes down to us heated by the tropical sun, and by travelling over regions of heated earth s surface, producing the hot wind of South Australia and Victoria. These hot winds are always in front of cyclonic movements, and are fully explained by them. As the cyclonic area approaches, moving eastwards, the barometer still continues to fall, while the temperature increases. The question now arises, Where is the centre of this area, and where will it pass? The way the wind shifts tells us of this. So long as the wind is north, the centre is to the west of us; if it shifts from N. to N.W., as is most frequently the case here, the centre passes to the south of us; if it falls calm, with perhaps clear sky and very low barometer, the centre passes over us; but if the wind backs from N. to NE. and E., it.

Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1904 Excerpt: . Occasional Common Table Of Distribution Of Tertiary Species Of Australian Sharks. (Continued). VI.--Comparative Table Of The Selachian Remains From The Northern Hemisphere And Australia. VII.--Summary Of Conclusions. From the foregoing examination of our Tertiary fish remains the following principal points may be summarized: --The genus Asteracanthus previously recorded by Tate from the Balcombian and Kalimnan, under the generic name of Strophodus, undoubtedly belongs to the former genus, evidence being rendered by the microscopic structure of the teeth. This extends beyond question the range of this hitherto Jurassic and Upper Cretaceous fish into the Tertiary seas round Southern Australia. With regard to the identified species, two Upper Cretaceous species occur in our beds of Jan Jukian age, viz.--Carcharias acutus and Lamna bronni. One species--Oxyrhina minuta--is apparently a comparatively restricted Miocene form in the Northern Hemisphere, and occurs here in the Jan Jukian, Balcombian, and Kalimnan. Ten species have a comparatively wide geological range in the tertiaries, both in the Southern and Northern Hemispheres, namely: --S. prisca, O. contortidens, O. cuspidata, L. crassidens, L. compressa, Ox. hastalis, Ox. desori, Ox. retroflexa, C. auriculatus, and 0. megalodon. These data do not furnish any very clear evidence of our tertiary succession and relative age of the beds, since the fauna has a general tertiary aspect, but the occurrence of the few Mesozoic forms gives an aspect of antiquity to the older portion of our tertiary strata. With regard to the occurrence of certain species found both in New Zealand and Australian strata, we gather some interesting information, which points to some affinity with the CretaceoTertiary Group of the former ar.

The previously recorded species are principally to be found in lists and catalogues of fossils, but seldom more than as a mere identification. Two of our species have, however, been well figured and described by the late Sir F. McCoy in the Prodromus of the Palaeontology of Victoria, and one other species by the late Professor Ralph Tate in the Proceedings of the Royal Society of New South Wales. The majority of the species identified in this paper are new to Australia, though some have previously been recorded from New Zealand deposits. In some cases we feel assured that the earlier records are not always to be relied upon in view of the large amount of material we have had at our disposal. The following have been previously recorded from the Australian Tertiaries: --Strophodus eocenicus = Asteracanthus eocaenicus. Otodus desori =Oxyrhina desori. Lamna elegans = Lamna crassidens. Lamna contortidens = Odontaspis contortidens. Lamna denticulata = Lamna compressa. Oxyrliina trigonodon = Oxyrhina hastalis. Oxyrhina hastalis. Oxyrhina woodsii = Lamna apiculata. Carcharodon angustidens = Carcharodon auriculatus. Carcharodon megalodon. In working out the material herein dealt with, we have fully examined the collections in the National Museum and that made by one of us (G. B. Pritchard), and we are also indebted to the following gentlemen for the loan of specimens from their collections: --Messrs. J. R. Dixon, T. S. Hall, J. F. Mulder, F. Spry, and G. Sweet, to whom we desire tq express our thanks. The present paper contains references to eleven genera, representing twenty-five species of the Selachian group, and includes three new species. The remainder of the fish fauna we hope to deal with in another paper. II.--DESCRIPTION OF SPEC. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781130746303
